Power = Community Impact
With writing at the heart of our work, grant professionals 1) capture vision and mission, 2) develop program descriptions that highlight potential community impact, and 3) contribute to reports that capture heartfelt results. We truly have the power to change communities.

In its eighth year, the Grant Professional Association MidAtlantic Grants Conference has become one of the best professional development events for grant professionals in the Northeast. Hosted by the NJ Chapter of GPA, this year's conference will take place at The Conference Center at Mercer on the campus of Mercer County Community College in West Windsor, NJ.
A full-day of grantsmanship training begins with a morning keynote and leads into a selection of 1.25-hour workshops you won't want to miss. An energizing luncheon keynote (and a little networking) will ready you for a second round of learning in the afternoon.
And all of this is only $75 for GPA members, $100 for non-members. What's not to love?
Affordably priced for both members and non-members, the MidAtlantic Grants Conference provides an excellent preview of what the Grant Professional Association has to offer. So take a peek and join us for a day of what will probably seem like lightening speed knowledge building when the day is all done. Meet new friends and colleagues, and get both the professional development and social support you need to be a top-notch GP (grant professional). After all, we're all in it to make a difference!
If you decide to join GPA after attending the conference, we'll apply $25 of your conference fee toward NJ Chapter membership (or another chapter membership of your choice)!
